Creating a legacy that lives on

As a nonprofit, local health care organization, Legacy plays a vital role in caring for the community.

The numbers tell the story

THE NUMBERS TELL THE STORY 

Legacy is different from most companies: We are owned by you, the community –– not shareholders, a family or any other private entity. All the money we take in for our services is put back into the organization to provide the best health care for the community and foster a stable future. In our most recent fiscal year, we took our 2.5 percent “margin,” which is essentially our profit, and reinvested it back into the organization and the community. Through our work, we also provided more than $443 million in direct benefit to the community.
For the benefit of all

FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL

From looking for solutions to meet to the region’s most pressing health needs, to providing care for those who can’t afford it and supporting other nonprofit organizations, we care for the community in many ways.

Partnerships for a better community

PARTNERSHIPS FOR A BETTER COMMUNITY

The challenges facing many of those in our community are both serious and complex: homelessness, mental health, child abuse and more. Legacy extends its ability to help by creating partnerships with other organizations to address these broad needs. Among those partnerships:

  • Unity Center for Behavioral Health, a facility for immediate psychiatric care and long-term help for people experiencing a mental health crisis .
  • Cares Northwest, a medical program for the assessment, treatment and prevention of child abuse.
  • Housing is Health, an initiative to construct buildings that provide low-income housing and medical care.
